According to reports, Zawe Ashton has signed on to become the villain of Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel 2
Zawe Ashton has reportedly joined the cast of Marvel’s Captain Marvel 2. According to various outlets, Ashton will play the villain in the highly-anticipated sequel that will be directed by Nia DaCosta. Marvel is keeping details about the role pretty close to their chest, but reports suggest the role is that of the main villain.
But which villain will she play? The obvious choice would be Moonstone. The character has been a long time nemesis of Carol Danvers and even joined Baron Zemo for a spell. And with Zemo installed as the main antagonist of The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, Moonstone seems to be a safe bet.
WandaVision story editor Megan McDonnell is on hand to pen the superhero sequel, and Ms. Marvel star Iman Vellani and WandaVision‘s Teyonah Parris are in line for appearances.
THE PLOT THICKENS
Sadly, no plot details for the film have been announced. However, now that the casting process is fully underway, and with the script already in place, surely filming will get underway sooner rather than later. As soon as we hear more about the project we’ll update the post.
